Felix Da Housecat: New Album


It's been eight years since Felix Da Housecat broke out of the house music underground with his electro-pop smash Kittenz and Thee Glitz (2001), joining the ranks of other soon-to-be-legendary electro-rock pioneers such as Peaches, Fischerspooner and Miss Kittin to define a new style of music and ignite a mass movement of dance-rockers and rocked-out DJs. Perhaps it's no accident that all of these artists are back with new albums this year, including our man Felix, who returns with the release of his new electronic opus He Was King on August 25.

His tenth album to date, He Was King is another release that should appeal to a wide variety of fans. "This is my electronic pop record," notes Felix. "Whereas Kittenz & The Glitz was straight up electro, He Was King is straight Felix Da Housecat pop with a nice electronic feel."

Packed with club smashes like "ELVI$" and future synth-pop classics such as "We All Wanna Be Prince" and "Spank You Very Much," it is arguably his most concise, complete work since Kittenz & The Glitz.

Here's Da Housecat's self-made video for lead-off cut "Kickdrum."
